by | Aug 31, 2021 | From the Kitchen

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 pork fillets
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Spice Rub:

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp coarse ground pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Honey Sesame Sauce:

  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • ½ tsp sesame seed oil
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch

Method

Spice Rub:

  1. Mix together kosher salt, coarse ground pepper, garlic powder, and ground cinnamon. Rub the spice mixture over the pork fillets. Place the fillet on an oven tray, cover, and refrigerate.

Honey Sesame Sauce:

  1. Put honey, soy sauce, olive oil, crushed garlic, sesame seed oil in a saucepan, whisk together, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together cold water and cornstarch and then slowly whisk into the sauce. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened.

Grilling:

  1. Remove the pork tenderloin from the fridge. Brush the griddle pan grates with vegetable oil and then cook the pork tenderloin over high heat for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside. Brush the pork tenderloin with some of the honey sesame sauce and grill an additional minute on each side to caramelize the sauce. Remove from pan and place in an ovenproof dish. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes covered with foil.
  2. Before serving sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and cut them into nice portion sizes. Can also be cut into bite-size pieces as snacks.
